Hydrangea problems. 1. About 6 weeks ago I bought a Hydrangea from Palmers, Greville rd. after a few days it was looking decidedly sick, starting to droop, and what flowers were on it started dying. I kept it reasonably moist in this dry weather watering it regularly (it is in a bark garden) now it has wilted drastically & the leaves are turning Brown. 2. I have had another Hydrangea for about a year, a few moths ago it started to lose its compactness & open out. it is also not flowering

Your new hydrangea sounds like it is suffering from transplant shock which I would suggest with this extreme heat we are experiencing would be a significant problem for it. If the leaves are drooping and turning brown this may be root rot. Please lift the plant and check that the ground is not to wet or clay like. If so I suggest adding more compost to the garden bed and working it into the soil well and adding Gypsum if heavy in clay. Plant the plant in a hole twice the size of the root ball with fresh garden mix only in this hole. Let your store know if you continue to have trouble in a few weeks and we will seek another remedy solution. I would suggest that the other Hydrangea is suffering from heat stress with this unusually hot summer.
